All's Well

all systems go
the first taste of action

the control box in the closet
concealed by coats
hanging as from the gallows

the click and gurgle of power
blasting, boiling thru copper

the smell of dust burning
the red signalling all's well.

  3. Heating finally turned on for winter?

  4. Trial run. Then the mild weather returned. With Sir John Major saying it's going to be a choice between heating or eating turning on the system is yet another decision that can't be taken lightly. Thank goodness for the woodburner.
